[Patch] RequestProcessor swallows exceptions in blocks case

                 Key: COCOON-1954
             Project: Cocoon
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: * Cocoon Core, - Blocks Framework
    Affects Versions: 2.2-dev (Current SVN)
            Reporter: Alexander Klimetschek
         Attachments: cocoon-request-processor-swallows-exceptions-for-blocks.patch

While updating to the latest Cocoon I stepped into the problem that you cannot see the exceptions
thrown in a BlockServlet called by another one, since the new refactored RequestProcessor
swallows all exceptions. The generated error page is fed into the response output stream which
is eventually read by anything in the calling pipeline, which mostly cannot handle that html
error page (in my case it gets some xml) and will throw another exception like SAXParseException.

This patch adds a boolean rethrowExceptions() method to the RequestProcessor that is used
inside service() to check whether a catched exception should be rethrown. The standard return
value is false, in the subclass o.a.c.sitemap.SitemapServlet$RequestProcessor it returns true
so that the exception is passed on to the "root" sitemap (handling the servletrequest that
actually comes from a browser or so) which will eventually create the error page.
